I don't see how anyone can "admire" The Later Years. It's one of the most disgracefully overpriced music sets to have come out. Over £400 for a box consisting predominantly of rehashed material. It might've been more palatable if it had been a veritable treasure trove of unreleased stuff like The Early Years was, but as it is the price tag was just insulting. By far the best thing in it seemed to be the expanded Delicate Sound of Thunder, and thankfully that's getting a sensible stand-alone release.Dali wrote: ↑Thu Oct 15, 2020 6:32 pmI really admire what Pink Floyd are doing with their boxsets - first came The Early Years, this year they released The Later Years and some time in the future there will be The Middle Years. They cost an arm and a leg, but they're pretty much exhaustive (especially the first one).
There's also the fact so many people had problems with shoddily-manufactured video discs in The Early Years that have started falling apart after a few years. Not something you'd expect from such a prestige box set.
